Abstract

In this paper, I will argue that one can affirm both Scriptural accounts of submission and a feminist ideology that resists oppression by offering a “queer” reading of Christ’s crucifixion and the events leading up to it. Using methodology made popular by critical theorist Judith Butler, I hope to construct a different reading of Christian Scripture, and more specifically, of the Lord’s Supper-- through suggesting that submission can be a form of agency, and volitional suffering as an act of desire. This, I believe, offers a way of reading the Christian narrative faithfully while still affirming feminist ideology.
